The Covid Cafe #15  Wlkg int Swmer #2   

Hobbs has



though the coffee’s the same 

Hobbs has reduced hours

most of the studnets

have gone

have gone

altacockers are staying in

or should

or should

who dares defy Covid 

19 or any other number

who dares defy Covid!



where I haven’t pizzaed in a few years

prefer Swarthmore Pizza which

isn’t technically in Swarthmore

then again there was a Philly Cheesesteak

in  Deerfield Beach, Florida so




is possible

in this or

any alternate universe 

and the Laundramat

remembered when washer

or dryer


The Swarthmore Co-op,

one has heard, 

now gives customers a yellow card,

one is carded,

to keep the customers at less than 50 

also heard that a mask is requested 

will not go until I find either my

George Bush or Darth Vader mask,

same difference,

though we now hear Darth had a rough childhood

people yelling “Yo Darthee”,



“Keeps me safe and leaves me numb” 

Seether on 98.50 WJYN  and 

not feeling either safe or numb

though would like to be

crossing Yale at Rutgers

even this Swarthmore dragway is





Did the circuit at 71 

still able,

keeping myself healthy

for her

is that what love is?
